Get ready to be jealous, real jealous. Some of the Brethren have some outstanding cooking areas. You will note that I have not posted any pron. Hasn't happened yet here.

ok time to take out my camera,,,,,

I KNOW no pics didn't happen cause around here,(its raining, or close every freaking day now) but I have poured concrete under my deck, and waterproof making it the best setup ever, then I made "walls" out of ladice, 2x4, and every open place has a laddice door, I have 4 doors under the deck now, and about 6 feet from the floor to the deck. I am not 6 foot tall (veryyyyy close) so it works great, but if I am in a hurry I do hit my head for some reason???

Here is where me and the Bride of Roo(b-q'n) do our cooking. Although we still have a few cookers in the garage.

I hope this isn't considered hijacking the thread, but since I'd like to do something along these lines also, what are some of the lessons learned from that those of you that HAVE taken the plunge?

Any features that are must haves?

Some that you thought you wanted/needed but didn't turn out to be crucial?

Something that you REALLY wish you'd thought of, or bitten the bullet and paid for?
